The South’s Best Tea Rooms PtII

Ever since we published our staggering Part ONE edition we have been inundated with many more that we never knew about. Who knows, there may just be a trilogy…

19 FourTeas, Havant

19

There is a cafe with a personality, owned and run by Jacqui Unal (aka Betty) known as the 19FourTeas (clever) tea room.  It is a beautifully decorated step back in time with staff dressed up to boot.

The website goes on to say, ‘Our building has an upstairs area as well as downstairs. In the main part of the tea rooms are your typical chairs and tables, in our inviting and fabulously themed building. Upstairs we have our 1940’s lounge area, where you can relax on luxury sofas and armchairs with your tea and food. Take a look at some of the photos below to see inside our tea rooms, or, better yet, pop in for a cuppa!’. Open from 9am – 4pm Monday to Saturday.

The 10 Th Hole, Southsea

TH-46-634x265

If heaven came in the form of a cake shop then this would be a massive slice. The ever popular and famous 10 Th Hole on Southsea sea front has always had the locals and outsiders taking. Or eating.

Situated in the old cricket grounds (and with it’s own golf course) this nostalgic club house not only hosts home made cake but lunch and breakfast all day. Perhaps the most talked about of this wonderful delight is the generous portions of cake to go along side your vessel and tea of choice. In fact they are so big you will need a box to take them home in.

The Vintage Tea Room, Fareham

Vintage Fareham

Described as, ‘The charming Vintage Tea Room in Fareham presents itself as an idyllic environment to relax, catch up with friends, sample the array of delectable cakes or grab a light bite’ it could not be more true. The dainty crockery, mouth watering cakes  and chic furniture makes this place proper old school baking house for the king or queen of dessert.

Lyndhurst Tea House, New Forest

Lynd

In a leafy haven not far from Southampton is the gorgeous New Forest. Amount the wild life is one cute little abode home to some fine afternoon tea. Local and  family owned, the independent tea house serves traditional tea favourites as well as fantastic home cooked breakfasts all day long.
You can choose a full English breakfast, or a freshly prepared sandwich or baguette, perhaps a warming homemade soup with crusty bread. If its lunch you require the Beer Battered Fish and Chips or an Steak and Ale Pie could be your choice.Alongside a pot of traditional tea or a freshly brewed cappuccino, or even a glass of wine or lager.
We believe in sourcing as many of our products as possible from local suppliers, many of which are also family owned business’s.

Halladays, Southampton

Halladays

We love a bit of bunting, it gives that party feel from yesterday-year. Halladay’s gives you just that. Located in the ever popular Bedford Place this place is a break from the norm of it’s neighbours that would normally open at night.

Famed not only for tea and cake the full English breakfast will have you drooling at least 24 hours in advance.

Found a great place to eat? Get in touch and we will just have to come along and join you…it’s a hard life!
